GROTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Groton Police have arrested a man they say was driving around town in a fake police car equipped with sirens and blue and red lights.

26-year-old Carl E. Adams faces over half a dozen charges including impersonating a police officer, risk of injury to a minor, and reckless driving.

This all comes one day after Groton Police allegedly spotted Adams’ green Honda CR-V with its sirens and lights on as it weaved in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed. The officer gave chase but was unable to catch the vehicle.

Adams was arrested Tuesday. He is being held on $20,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in New London Court Wednesday.
